Paleo Pulled Pork

So I recently posted a picture of some paleo pulled pork and several people have asked me how it was made. Well, the problem is, when I cook, I do not use recipes. I am one of those people who just throw some ingredients together and usually, the turnout is pretty darn good. So, after some thought, I can only post the ingredients I used and not exact measurements. Better than nothing I suppose.

Before Smoking

So, here is the list of ingredients that were used:
  • Chili Powder
  • Cloves of Garlic- I actually cut slits into the meat and shoved the garlic into the meat
  • Cumin
  • Fresh Oregano
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Salt
  • Fresh Ground White Pepper
  • Cayenne Pepper
Oh, and I used a Boston Pork Butt. It was about 8 pounds. Once you get all the ingredients on there, it's time to fire up the smoker. I used an electric one.

Preheat your smoker to 219 degrees F. You are going to cook the butt in the smoker for approximately 10 to 12 hours and you want to maintain the temperature at 210. I used hickory wood chips. 

To check if the butt is ready, use a fork. When the meat easily falls apart, it's time to take it out. Let is sit for about an hour and then you can pull the meat apart. 

Finished Product

And there you have it. I paired it with a paleo BBQ sauce made with:
  • Tomato Paste
  • Vinegar
  • Raw Honey
  • Onion
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Liquid Smoke
